No. 3 Georgetown (6-0) at No. 20 Navy (4-3)

Site: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis

Time: Noon

Radio: Tape delay on WNAV (1430 AM) at 5 p.m.

Outlook: Navy has won four straight since beginning the season 0-3 for the first time. The Mids need to bounce unbeaten Georgetown to keep alive their hopes for the East Coast Athletic Conference title. Navy enters the game 2-2 in the ECAC; Georgetown is 2-0. The Mids are coming off a 13-4 rout of Lehigh, and plebe attackman Dave Pittard continues to lead the way with nine goals and 11 assists for a team-high 20 points. Junior attackman Eddie McKinnon is second with 18 points, 14 in the past four games. Senior midfielder Adam Borcz also has been hot in the past four games, posting 11 of his 15 points. Junior Michael Schaal and sophomore Chris Dingman have come on strong in faceoffs, with Schaal providing the short-stick punch lately (winning 20 of his past 26 faceoffs) and Dingman being tough to beat with the long stick (21 of his past 28). Georgetown's 48-34 average-advantage per game in ground balls highlights its unbeaten season. The Hoyas have scored on 18 of 38 extra-man chances. Sophomore attackman Mike Hammer (10 goals, 14 assists) and junior midfielder Steve Dusseau (17, 6) pace the Hoyas' offense.
